About me

Jake Gordon

I am a principal product engineer who builds web and mobile applications, startup engineering teams, and occasional fun games on the side. I am based in the Pacific Northwest.

I have been doing this for a living for over 20 years, and have been coding for over 30 years after first getting my hands on a C64 as a teenager in the mid 80’s. In 1994 I received my Computer Science degree from Imperial College in London.
